Stephen: Several frozen mango brands tied to Hepatitis A contamination

Published on August 3rd, 2021 @ 5:34 PM


Several brands of frozen mangoes have been recalled by Nature’s Touch Frozen Foods due to possible contamination with Hepatitis A.  The Public Health Agency of Canada is advising that Newfoundland & Labrador is among the provinces Nature’s Touch distributes to, and the brands affected include Compliments and President’s Choice. Below are directions on what to do if you think you may have been exposed to these products:

If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.

Check to see if you have the recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

Food contaminated with Hepatitis A virus may not look or smell spoiled. Consumption of food contaminated with this virus may cause hepatitis and produce a self-limited disease that does not result in chronic infection or chronic liver disease. The illness is usually mild and starts about 15 to 50 days after the contaminated food is eaten. It generally goes away by itself in a week or two, although it can last up to 6 months in some people. It can cause inflammation of the liver, and symptoms may include fever, low appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle aches, and yellowing in the whites of the eyes and the skin (jaundice).
